Guest Post on Sarah Rooftops

Hello! I've penned a guest post on moving house/city and so on over at the most excellent Sarah Rooftops blog today. You should check it out.

Go on. It is totally worth it. Then share your secrets too.

In other news the plan moving with no back up plan seems to be working as I got a formal job offer today and am due to start later this month. Pretty good going all told.

Monday Music: Hinds/The Parrots

So I missed Record Store Day as I was in an exam all day (which I only went and PASSED btw)

If I *had* been after getting my hands on anything though it would have been the Hinds *heart* Parrots double A side which I would have mostly got for the Hinds cover of Davey Crocket by Thee Headcoats; a song which makes me ridiculously happy. Maybe not quite as ridiculously happy as Fucking Bitches in the Hood by Death Team (who have a new song coming out on 8th May) makes me but it comes fairly close.

Having said that The Parrots cover of All My Loving is pretty joyful too. Check it out:

Enjoy and happy Monday!

Monday Music: Get Better

So a few weeks ago I should have been checking my email to see this being sent to me as a mailing list member but I didn't. Thankfully I did check twitter and see this tweet:

Basically I hung off posting this as my reaction was something along the lines of "OhMyGodThisSongTOTALLYExplainsALLofMyFEELINGS" and I thought I'd give it a week or two to see if I still feel that way.

So yeah. I pretty much still love it and think it is my favourite Frank Turner song in a while. I think Frank mixed with wonderful Butch Walker. I love the way the song builds, the piano details and the real anthemic drive of it. Without all the production it is still pretty good, as I can confidently state having seen Frank perform it solo and acoustic as part of his book tour.

"I'm trying to get better because I haven't been my best" is also a pretty good description of my "journey" so far this year.

The album comes out later this year and you can buy his book, The Road Beneath my Feet now.
